For one, I figured out that you need to set the crossover frequency, distance, and speaker size for each input you use, and this includes both digital (optical and coaxial) and HDMI. You can only use a total combination of 4 optical or coaxial inputs, but 8 HDMI inputs. If you want to play stereo you hit the stereo button and when you want to go back to multichannel you hit stereo again. If you want to use your analog balanvce input, you hit the balance 1 or 2 input. If you want to bypass the sub on balance, hit the 2 channel button. Its really quite logical, and the beauty of the unit is once configured, you don't have to touch it again.
I don't think you need to set speaker distances etc, differently for each input. At least, I never did.
After reading your post, I went back and checked , and they're set the same on all the inputs I use--unless I'm doing something wrong? I simply entered the input combination--i.e. bal1 plus digital for the BDP-1 --and went into the setup menu and checked them. They were all the same as I had set them the last time I went in there, on whatever input I was on at the time.
If there is a way to set them individually, I don't know what it is, and don't need it in my situstion.
Am I missing something?...Thanks.
